Recommended on seekingalpha. The company has been hit hard by the real estate crisis. It traded into the $40's before the crisis. Earnings estimates for 2012 are $1.28.

Following Valuemoney. Stewart Information Services Corp is a highly solvent title company selling for 0.49 times book value, which is 1.0 times tangible book value. The company lost money in 2009 and 2008 but analysts expect a small profit for 2010. An insider named Edgar Allen Smith is consistently buying shares. Although I am aware that Steward Information Services has a tough road to walk in the current economic climate, I am excited by the opportunity to get into the lucrative title insurance industry at such a low price. Whenever real estate firms up (which might be a long time) this company's price will double.

Almost invested real money in this instead of IPHS. Want to track both of them to see how they do.

We know that foreclosures are escallating because of the rate resets on mortgages to owners that can't afford them.

After these foreclosure, SOMEONE's got to buy all those auctioned off houses, and those buyers are going to need title insurance. Why is this stock down so much?

Am I the only one that sees the sub-prime meltdown as being eventually good for the title insurance industry?

Has done a lot of work with title automation, which should attract business outside of it's own title transactions.

Tangible Book value of $32. Profits of $2-$4 /year. Promising new title automation software will reduce operating expenses and boost market share.

I believe this small cap title insurer is going to outperform in the long haul. At around $35, this stock is trading at a 30% discount to intrinsic value. This estimate takes into account a housing recession that will cause FCF to fall to near zero, stay there for 2 years, and then recover to levels still well below 2001 levels. In my view, these estimates are very pessimistic and may not come to fruition. As mortgage rates rise, homeowners with variable rate loans will refinance which will mean purchasing new title insurance loans. Include the fact that the co-CEOs have a significant stake in the company, and I think STC is very likely to do well in the future.
